Notable Performances in “My Ages Apart”
TVB Anniversary drama, My Ages Apart <誇世代>, has a star-studded cast. Starring Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華), Moses Chan (陳豪), Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), Ali Lee (李佳芯), and Maggie Shiu (邵美琪), the drama brings audiences on a roller-coaster ride with its varying themes of fantasy, comedy, and drama. One of the more complicated love storylines is between Moses’ “Mike” and Ali’s “Paris”.
Moses spoke of his character’s feelings towards Ali, “[Mike] likes her, but doesn’t dare to like her!” Ali’s character, Paris, also changes from being unreasonable and bratty, to someone who is considerate of other’s feelings because of Moses. On her character, Ali said, “I have to continually seduce him and keep his attention. I keep having to think about how I can make him like me!” Ali also stressed about a “nude” scene, “It was the first time I had to bare my entire back [on screen]! At the time, I could only use tape. We made sure it was safe, but the tape started coming off during filming! It was so dangerous!”
Playing off of her much hyped about “godlike synchronization” with Nancy Wu (胡定欣) in Ghost of Relativity <鬼同你OT>, Kristal Tin also had a scene with Ali where they were in perfect synchronization. Kristal explained that the two synchronizations were, in fact, different. “This time, we just synchronized our lines. I felt that I was compatible with both [Nancy and Ali]. I remember in Ghost of Relativity, the “godlike synchronization” scene was written early on. But this time with Ali, it was something we added unexpectedly. We didn’t find out about it until two days prior to filming. We had a shorter time to rehearse.”
In addition to the superb acting by Moses, Kristal, and Ali, the newer generation of artistes such as Louisa Mak (麥明詩), Anjaylia Chan (陳嘉寳), Luk Wing Kuen (陸永權), and Dickson Yu (余德丞), also put on notable performances. In one scene, Louisa had to wear a swimsuit to meet Dickson. This was the first time that the 2015 Miss Hong Kong winner had to wear swimwear on screen as an actress and felt extremely awkward. When teased whether she was embarrassed because the muscular Dickson has a bigger chest than she does, Louisa said, “There’s no comparison. I don’t need to have a chest as big as his!”
